PostSubject: Why are we Even Here.   Sun Mar 22, 2015 7:25 pm

First topic message reminder :

Mercury the Fennekin dragged her friend Kye around a smoky haze of apparent toxins, following the directions that a shady Nidorino had given them earlier. She looked around at everything around them, though the misty fumes made it hard to see everything clearly. Regardless, Mercury bounced around energetically.

All the mist was AMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZZZIIINNNGGG, and it was blowingerestering Mercury's tiny, broken mind.

"Wow Kye, look at all the mist around here!!!" Mercury exclaimed, bringing him closer and closer to the Gulch. It had taken them most of the morning to get here, and it was now around noon for them. "It's amazing, isn't it?! Have you ever seen anything like it?!?!" the odd Fennekin gushed. She was extremely happy, to be there, especially being there with her new, besterest best friend.

(Mercury - 3 Energy)

With the sweet embrace of the ground caressing him into sleep, Velikye almost wanted to submit to the desire. After all, he'd surely be fine if he just slept. But, even in his hazy mental state, he still retained the understanding that he needed to remain conscious as he was in a very dangerous place. Luckily, Mercury was there to make certain that he couldn't sleep even if he wanted to. With his luck, she would probably make sure he never slept again after this. As if resting wasn't already off the table when he was around her before... But this thought didn't bother him nearly as much as his companion's total obliviousness to what he'd just said to her. Had she not heard? It was probably hard to understand him over the blaring sound of her own voice, he figured.

The eevee listened idly as their escort tried to explain what he'd wanted. At least someone was paying attention. For a moment, he had hope that perhaps Mercury would now understand to just wish him back to health. Then, the fenniken leaned in close to him and began to gently scream in his ear about giving him an idea. This marvel of a thought that she felt would help him? Advice on washing himself... Very weird advice. Did he even have "whiter fur?" His fur was more of a silvery... gray kind of color, or at least he thought so. He supposed he would probably eventually have to explain that his fur wasn't white, but the more prominent concern was Mercury's all-encompassing lack of understanding.

Finally, Mercury understood what she had to do... Not really. She'd had to be tricked into wishing, which was kind of sad, but if it got the job done, then Kye had no complaints. Slowly, he began to feel the energy, first in the air then in his own body. The soothing influence took a moment to take effect, but once it did, his headache disappeared nigh-instantaneously. Rejuvenation rushed through his body and restored his lost energy, and he could finally open his eyes and see clearly again. The haze had lifted, and now, he knew exactly what he needed to do. First, he took a deep breath of fresh air now that he could enjoy it... and immediately regretted it with a cough as he was reminded that the air was, in fact, not fresh. After that bad idea, he decided it was about time to get up off the filthy ground and stop holding the others up.

With a somewhat-dull expression on his face, as if to show how unamused he was, Velikye stared at the fenniken for a moment. Then, without even the slightest bit of filter, he spoke: "You're such an airhead."
He was very matter-of-fact about the whole thing. While he didn't intend for it to be hurtful, he also wasn't finished yet, so perhaps the good intentions behind the statement were unclear. His demeanor completely changed as he sighed and nuzzled up to his friend for just a moment. "Never change," he spoke with a giggle before beginning to walk onward toward the guide.
Sure, Mercury was a total idiot, but she was the nicest, most fun idiot this eevee had ever met. Even if her lack of critical thinking ability annoyed him at times, he still couldn't think of anyone he would have preferred as a friend.

When Kye woke up, Mercury couldn't help but let out a gasp of pure astonishment. "Kye....." she exclaimed breathlessly, "you heard me! I figured you would though, the ground is a terrible place to sleep. Especially in a place full of grodie fumes." As he stared at him, for a moment Mercury stared back as if she were actually fully self-aware. Exactly what else were you expecting? her stare said, with just a hint of a smile. When he nuzzled her though, all of that went away again and she giggled too. "You don't have to worry about, I'm a Fennekin not a ditto!" She couldn't believe he thought she could change, though it was flattering. She hoped she could be impressive enough with her other talents that it wouldn't matter that she couldn't transform like a ditto could!

As he started to walk away, Mercury smiled and cheerily called out, "Hey Kye! Don't do that!" She said nothing else.

In the moment directly after that, a Nidoqueen reared up behind their big friendly bug boy friend and swung her giant, meaty arms right into the right side of his buggy noggin. She superman'ed that ho. Crank that soldja boi. His giant body left an after image he was rocketed into the wall so quickly. He wasn't even awake when his poor princely face was buried two inches deep into the rock wall beside him. Couldn't taste the minerals as he drooped down the rock (admittedly a little comically) and collapsed under the weight of his unconscious frog friend.

It's a home run, ladies and gentlemen.

Mercury stood there, still smiling like a dumb idiot. The look in her eyes, however, was decidedly not the look of a dumb idiot. There were indescribable feelings there. The kind that don't want to be superman'ed like that ho. In that moment, Mercury finally, finally experienced a ghost of something other than pure joy and amusement that wasn't caused by a tragedy with Kye.

"Hey Kyyyyyeeeee.....~ That's not normal, is it?~" She called in a sing-song voice that held an incalculable amount of tense undertones. The Nidoqueen slowly looked over at them. "I have a new game!" She looked at him, and then looked at a trail of rocks going up the side of the cliff, leading further up the gulch wall. "It's called this friend needs anger management!!!" She screamed as she started pushing him towards the rocks. "This is how it works!!! If we don't get punched into the rocks we WIN!!!!!"

When told to stop, Velikye stopped. Or at least, he assumed that was what the words "Don't do that" were supposed to mean; but regardless, they served to halt his progress. He glanced back to see what Mercury wanted and why she had decided to tell him to stop in such an odd manner; and he did get an answer, but not from her. It was only when the sounds of violence and danger drew his attention back away from his fluffy friend that he realized what it was she wanted. There was a large, blue creature fighting with the duo's guide, if it could even be called a fight. In an instant, the nidoqueen demonstrated her power by absolutely demolishing the opposition, leaving a very useless guide who was unconscious at best. She was clearly aggressive, and even more clearly strong, far too much so for a weak little eevee to do anything to. Kye would have thought that perhaps Mercury could do something, but aside from not being all that much stronger than himself, she would be at a disadvantage against this foe. He took a step back in absentminded fear as he stared at the nidoqueen, his body momentarily freezing up under the pressure.

Then came Mercury's voice once more, this time questioning if this was "normal." She was wording everything so oddly; the situation wasn't abnormal so much as dangerous, but he got the feeling she was registering that. Perhaps the looming danger was the reason for the fennekin's strange behavior; maybe she knew they were both in danger and just didn't know how to mentally process such a thing. Either way, they seemed to be on the same page in regards to this situation and how not good it was, which became further evident from Mercury's reaction when the nidoqueen's attention redirected to them. In truth, Kye found himself further unnerved by the mere act of meeting the thing's gaze, but it seemed to be hitting Mercury far harder. She actually appeared to be registering the danger of the situation, which was a shock since she didn't seem aware of risks and threats most of the time. Alas, congratulating her on this monumental achievement would have to wait until they were both out of the way of harm.

Upon being pressed toward the path his friend had chosen, Velikye bolted for the rocks; not that he needed to be told to run, but knowing Mercury was on-board helped. "Come on then!!" he shouted, wanting her to know that she didn't have to stay behind on his account. He was perfectly capable of running away from something without having to have someone telling him to do so and looking out for him. He wasn't exactly complaining about Mercury putting his safety over her own, but he didn't see how her sticking around to make sure he knew how to run and in what direction would help anything. Running away from things was pretty much the one thing he was good at; he didn't need any help with this of all things. In hindsight, that was a depressing fact, but it was not without its merits, especially in situations such as this. Sometimes, being a coward and being good at it wasn't such a bad thing; such a trait could preserve one's own life. For instance, in the event of being attacked by an angry nidoqueen, the ability to run away was starting to seem pretty useful.

And run he did, straight toward the rocky trail up the cliffside and up onto the poor excuse for a path. Without a moment's hesitation, he hopped up off the ground and made his way to the rugged terrain that would... hopefully carry him upward and away from the imminent danger. He wasn't sure if these rocks would be able to hold him, but he figured it had a higher chance of success than the alternative of sticking around with the nidoqueen. He stopped momentarily, but not due to any fear of the path giving out under him; actually, it was due to concern for Mercury. He wanted to make sure she was heeding her own advice and fleeing, though he wasn't sure what he would be able to do even if that turned out not to be the case.

Oh, Mercury was more than at Kye's heels. She was so at his heels that when he stopped she did a front flip over his back and landed on her back with a loud "guh," quickly followed by her scrambling to her feet and dancing around on all her tiny paws. She was all in a tizzy, her thoughts raced like bees, bouncing up and down and all around and in and out of her head. It had been fun climbing.... but they only had time for what they needed to do right now. They could try climbing in the grey rock houses later. Smaller pebbles around her seemed to shake and vibrate with her same anxious energy, but Mercury didn't notice. She looked at Kye with urgency and worry. "What, what is it Kye? Do you need something? Do you need a snack? I sure could use a snack, my legs hurt- but do we have time for a snack??? Did we win the game????"

BOOM.

The ground shook beneath their paws and rocks began to topple down and off the pile they were on as they were rattled out of place by the sudden shockwave. Mercury slooooooowly turned her head to see that the Nidoqueen was below them, standing just before a brand-new rift in the ground where a Skuntank was now laying, buried in cooling masses of dirt that had just been forced up onto it. Mercury's jaw dropped.

"Hey, no fair!! HACKS!!! That stuff puts out fire," she screamed, clearly irked that the giant brute had broken whatever rule Mercury thought was in place. Still, she wouldn't let the cheater deter them. She and Kye were better than that, and they were going to win. They had to win. the prize was going back to her den with her new friend; maybe they could play some gentler games and she could show him all the cool things her home! She wanted that now, that was all she wanted. This adventure was taking too long, it was getting in the way of them doing more fun things, and she was desperate just to get to a place where Kye didn't have to be scared and act weird. She turned to start running with all of this in mind, only to suddenly be slammed from the side and knocked over by something... round. She grunted in surprise both as she was hit and as she hit the ground. She tried to get up and see what had hit her, but not before another body landed on her stomach and knocked the wind out of her.

"Stay down!!!" a scratchy voice hissed.

"Just get the bag!! There's too much heat!!!" another demanded in a frenzy.

"Nobody said you could play!" Mercury protested as she coughed the air back into her lungs, flailing her legs around and squirming under the tiny bug legs that were pinning her down. The Venipede struggled against her as well, trying to get her to stay still enough for his companion to get her bag off her body. The stress pooled in her mind; visions and blotches of colors dancing around in her vision. She could feel the air vibrating around her, as it was mad too. It was like it had been before, a force growing in the back of her mind as her heart beat faster and her blood throbbed angrily in her veins. She groaned through her teeth as the pressure grew, starting to give her a headache. Pockets of psychic energy began to form in the air around her, flashing the colors of her duress in staggered palpitations. She wanted this bug off.

"Don't stand on me, stupid jerk!!!" Mercury yelled, a guttural cry dripping with her anxiety. The psychic blobs converged on the bug in the blink of an eye, exploding with physical force. The penetrating pressure knocked the bug out immediately, and sent his body and the remaining force flying into the rocks above. His body, buried under the rocks that became dislodged from the impact, created a useful way to continue onward.

Mercury was now finally able to adjust herself. She tried to do so in a panic, but almost immediately the strap from her bag caught her throat. The other Venipede, seeing this, twisted the bag and started to pull harder from behind her in the hopes of suffocating her. Panic filled Merc's chest once again as she realized she could no longer breathe. The air in her throat made gurgling sounds as it tried in vain to push past the strap. Her mouth hung agape as she flailed and flailed around like she had to throw the other bug off, but this time her struggle was making the strap tighten painfully around her neck. Undeterred and motivated by her will to win, she weakly flailed her paw at the strap until she caught it and managed to shove her paw underneath. Then she got the other one under. She used both her paws to pull against the Venipede, finally putting some breathing space between the strap and her throat.

"K-ye!!!!!" she screamed as she gasped for air. She looked over and saw the blue behemoth, who had taken notice of the struggle and was lumbering her way. "Kye, you gotta- caahck." In this moment of distraction, one of her paws slipped from the strap and it snapped back against her neck, the Venipede now pulling with more urgency. With this new urgancy though, Mercury could feel his grip slipping by the way he had to continually re-adjust. She wiggled her free paw around until she regained leverage, and then gave the bag a good, hard yank when she felt the Venipede re-adjusting again. It was enough to free her back from the Venipede's mouth, and Mercury wasted no time in weakly but quickly getting back on her feet and regaining control. She looked at the blue behemoth again as it began to try scaling the rocks. She looked behind her, and she could see the Venipede scuttling towards her.

This was a bad situation. If they kept on like this, they'd loose.

"Kye!!" she screamed again as she kicked the Venipede's face away with her hind leg. "Kye, you have to go on!!! You have to go, otherwise we won't win!!" The Venipede spun around while she was calling to him, jabbing one of it's stingers in her stomach. She squealed in pain; this was a really annoying time for a play fight. "I'll keep distracting! I'll take another way around!!! ....You have to win! You have to!!!!"

Velikye was about as unprepared for Mercury to be right behind him when he stopped as she was; and having the fennekin's form thrown over him was enough to knock him down as well. He scrambled back to his paws, fortunately unscathed from the little fall, but the group fleeing exercise was put on hold as the nidoqueen assaulted what seemed to be some random passerby; violently and loudly, at that. Despite the protest of his instincts, Kye turned around to look instead of just fleeing. There, he saw the large creature hovering over a skuntank, which he felt was weird since he hadn't noticed anyone else in the area. Granted, he wasn't exactly looking for random strangers to pay attention to at the moment. He couldn't help but stare down at the nidoqueen and wonder if he should have felt bad for her victim. He didn't like just watching some stranger get hurt and letting it happen, but there was no way he was going to go try to help. He may have felt the slightest bit of shame at his own cowardice, but his desire to survive was far greater.

What finally snapped him back to focus was actually Mercury... sort of. The variety of sounds emanating from her direction drew his attention to her just in time for him to see two venipede attacking her. It was pretty easy to gather from their words that they were thieves trying to mug her, and apparently pretty sneaky ones at that; he had failed to notice their approach and wasn't sure where they had come from. The poor, naive fennekin barely seemed to understand what was happening; that she was being attacked by criminals; real criminals. Kye knew he was supposed to help, because she was his friend and she didn't deserve what was happening to her, but he... didn't. He didn't even try. He just stood there watching, unmoving as if he genuinely just wanted to watch the scene play out. He didn't, but he was too scared to help Mercury despite how kind she had been to him. In truth, he barely knew her, and he wasn't willing to risk his life for anyone, let alone someone he'd only known for a week or two. He was a coward and he knew that, but he still felt guilty about it.

He watched one of the venipede begin choking his supposed friend, and he could see that it was working; she was struggling to breathe and probably in pain. He felt an impulse to rush to her aid, yet he remained in place. He wanted to run, but his body was refusing to let him, as if it knew that was wrong. He couldn't flee and he wouldn't help, which left him frozen in place, doing nothing to protect Mercury nor himself. He tried to rationalize fleeing in his mind, thinking about how the airhead probably would have met the shady guy telling her to go to this horrible place regardless, and how she probably would have gotten into this exact same situation regardless. All things considered, the presence of the eevee to guide her away from stupid decisions and help her not die in general had probably gotten her further than she would have managed on her own. He had done his part, and Mercury had still managed to get herself in a situation that was almost certainly going to result in her death. He didn't want to join her.

Through the asphyxiation, he could hear the shallow and strained voice of the fennekin calling out to him. He assumed she was calling for his help, for him to save her, but he would do no such thing. He could not bring himself to help even if he wanted to, and truthfully, he didn't want to. Putting his life on the line for someone else's was not something he was a fan of. He absentmindedly stepped away from the scene as if to show his refusal toward what he assumed was a call for help. He didn't want to abandon Mercury, but really, what choice did he have? Stay and die to show his support for her? He was already stumbling away and turning to run before Mercury had even freed herself. He had already decided to leave her and save his own skin. He couldn't exactly say he didn't care about the pleads for his help, but it wasn't anywhere near enough to get him to stay. Despite this, he was finding it difficult to motivate himself to run; he knew it was time-sensitive and the nidoqueen would probably stamp out any chance of escape if he didn't go while Mercury served as a distraction, but he still found it difficult to move.

Kye turned around once more in his own hesitance, this time to see Mercury freeing herself from the chokehold of the bug trying to strangle her. The eevee turned and bolted, now able to find solace in the possibility that maybe the sweet little idiot would survive. Deep down, he knew this was naive, but it was something he could use to help motivate him to just leave. He could feel something wet on his face which it took him a moment to realize the source of. He was crying? Over someone who may as well have been a stranger and probably would have just weighed him down anyway? It wasn't his job to babysit some barely-developed child and risk his own life for hers. It wasn't his duty to die for someone else, especially when they were just going to go and die too regardless of what he did. Still, he found himself stopping again if only for a moment; this time however, he did not turn around. He refused to give so much as a glance back to see how the victim was faring, though he did take a look down at the nidoqueen to remind himself that he needed to look out for his own safety.

Then he heard Mercury's voice once more, this time telling him to run. She was actively encouraging him to flee and leave her behind. Did she even know what she was truly telling him to do; that she was asking him to leave her to die? Did she understand the weight of the situation and the danger she was in? Kye barely even thought about it before his body started moving, scaling the rocky terrain in the opposite direction of everything. It didn't matter if she understood or not; Mercury had accepted her fate and told him to run. Still, despite this, his heart was torn at the prospect of his actions. Please, he thought to himself as a lightheaded feeling overcame him. Please don't die, the wish reverberated throughout his mind. I'm sorry... Please live, he practically begged. He had no one and nothing in his life. Mercury was the only thing he could even come close to calling a friend and now he was leaving her. He wanted that to remain true, but he couldn't bring himself to put his own safety at risk for hers. He was practically begging the world to just give him this one thing, even though he had done nothing to earn it.

A faint glow emanated from his body for just a moment as he fled. He didn't ask for things often, let alone things he knew no one could give him. He knew it wasn't his place, but sometimes he just couldn't help it. And in this case, he knew his wish had some weight to it. Maybe it would matter.

Please let her live...

One more wish; one he knew he didn't deserve to have granted.

Mercury saw Kye running and felt a renewed burst of energy deep within her. She knew he had understood the importance of winning, of getting away. And with two of them, they could get things done twice as quickly!! She had hope now, hope that they could get though this situation and finally get home!

She whipped around and spewed a mouthful of hot embers on the Venipede, which easily deterred him from his rollout move and sent him packing with a harsh burn. Watching him run gave her some feeling of accomplishment; clearly she had won this little encounter. She allowed herself just a moment to bask in this victory before her head was back in the game. The little fox then turned and dashed to get behind a rock before the big angry anger friend saw her and came to force-feed her fuzzy face big rocks!!!

She felt powerful, warm, like she had just eaten a whoooooole forest of sticks, but she also felt... something not warm. Something not happy. Something... Mercury couldn't put her paw on it, but it made her feel worried for Kye. She looked up the rocks from her hiding space, but she couldn't catch a glimpse of him. She just got the feeling.... like he was acting droopy. She had to catch up to him!! She had to figure out what was the matter!!! She.... she wanted to give him a hug. She kind of wanted a hug herself, to be honest. Something to reassure her that she was going to be okay, that they were going to be okay. It didn't take long for things to get lonely without Kye around. It was like when she had been alone... only she hadn't realized that anything had even been missing until Kye had been there!!!! Mercury didn't want to go back to not having Kye. Man, now she was feeling droopy too.... but it wouldn't be much longer that she had to feel droopy. It was really time to go home, anyways. There's no better place to not feel droopy than at home.

Mercury was snapped out of her thoughts by the sensation of a looming figure over her and her rock.

The titanic creature lifted Mercury off the ground as if she were a feather, small and insignificant against a mountain of muscle and poison. The giant angry friend turned Mercury around and suddenly Mercury was staring her giant mug dead in the eyes. Mercury was almost certainly a loser at this point, but... maybe not....? She hadn't been buried in a pile of rocks at least.

The Nidoqueen sighed in slight relief as she finally felt her grip close around the tiny vulpine child. They had run so fast, and had been so hard to catch... She wondered what foolish parents had let such young children wander so far into such a dangerous place. The carelessness boggled her mind.

"Who are you?" The creature asked in a deep, gruff voice. With every passing second, Mercury felt a little less nervous around this friend. She was big..... and punchy, but she hadn't punched Mercury when she caught her. Maybe... she was just a good sport? Maybe she had just been getting the interrupters out of the way? Whatever the reason,

"Uhm... My name's Mercury.... friend?"

"Mmmm," the Nidoqueen grunted,  You're too young to play here. You need to grow more before you come wandering in a place like this." Mercury would never know it, but the Nidoqueen was looking at her with melancholy eyes. The eyes of one who had lost someone dear to them, perhaps. A childless mother, one who was all too familiar with the area and the consequences of visiting it. The way she held Mercury was tight, but still ginger. She felt a pang of regret flash through her heart as she looked down at the small form in her hand, perhaps reminiscing on a past life that she could no longer return to. Mercury of course had no idea about any of this, but she did find that big maybe-not-so-angry friend was strangely... soothing to her. It was cathartic in a way that Mercury would never understand like this, the feeling of a motherless child and a childless mother healing each other. "It's time for you to go home. Back where you came from; you and your friend." She lifted Mercury to her shoulder and set her there, finally providing the tiny fox with the sanctuary she needed to finally rest.

But how could Mercury rest?!??! She was so TALL now on top of this friend!! She looked around in awe at how much she could see. If loosing was this amazing, Mercury wouldn't mind doing it more often every now and again! Maybe. Probably not. But it was cool while it lasted!!

"Wow, it sucks that we lost but I can see everything here! Although I guess I haven't been punched into any rocks yet so I guess we haven't lost yet!!" Mercury exclaimed.

The creature stopped climbing the rocks a second to give her a strange look. "You think you're playing a a game? This isn't a place for kids or games."

"Well that explains why it's so hard to play anything here!!"

The Nidoqueen snorted. "Do your parents let you do things like this often?"

Mercury's tail wagged. "My parents will let me do anything because they're not here!!! They're SLEEPING, far away!! They're sleeping A LOT!!!"

The Fennekin's answer deeply disturbed the Nidoqueen. She chose not to pursue the topic further to avoid upsetting the child, but she still felt as though she had to say something to correct the Fennekin's confused thinking. "Even if they're far away, I don't think they would want you running and playing in dangerous places like this," she responded.

"Huh, why?"

"Because they wouldn't want you to get hurt. They would want you to stay safe."

The sentiment was mostly lost on the Fennekin. "Okay...." she said in her confusion, although the Nidoqueen mistakenly took this for acceptance. Surely Kye could explain it to her more when they caught up....

"Kye!!!!" Mercury yelled in a panic as she suddenly caught a glimpse of the very mon she had been thinking about. Far in front of her, she could see Kye, surrounded by two big double balls and then two smaller balls, all giving him smiles that Mercury couldn't believe were actually smiles. They were more like..... sludge. Gross and slimy sludge that had no business being around her good friend Kye. She started to get anxious again, her paws tapping on big friendly not angry friend's shoulder nervously. They were so far away... and big friend wasn't getting there very quickly. Her nerves began to build up around her, in the air more glowing orbs began to form....

"This is why you don't split up in a place like this..." the Nidoqueen huffed to no one in particular as she redoubled her efforts to get up the rocks.

Ahead, a small group of mobsters held Kye under their beady stares. Their smirks were predatory and disgusting, the type you would never stop to associate with. With four of them blocking every direction of escape however, Kye didn't have much of a choice.

"Those Venipede are useless," the largest Weezing huffed. "They'd never finish the hit if it weren't for us." He inspected Kye with a piercing glare, leaving nothing unexposed in his inspection of the small fluff. "You're pretty worthless on your own, aren't you? Literally. All your possessions, your power, everything you got's with the girly. You ain't even got the sense to stick with what you do got!!" he chortled. "Yeah, in this territory that's about equivalent to a big fat diddly dang 0. At least it would be, if you didn't have that special sort of shine to your fur." He got closer to Kye and his sneer grew wider. "The way I see it, you got two worths now: if that girl somehow survives, you make a pretty good bartering chip before we figure out how much that fur of yours is worth exactly.  If she gets got, well, it's just the fur. We'll go clean up what's left of her and then we'll be on our way to a.... friend of mine. He'll be able to tell you exactly what scraps ya had left." One of the Koffings watched over the cliff to see what was becoming of Mercury.

"Oh god, it's got her. I can't watch this," the Koffing groaned, turning away and moving back to the group.

"Yer a fucking pansy and you always have been. I should make you watch," the large Weezing huffed.

Fleeing from the things that were targeting his "friend" was easy, but his own guilt was a different story. Kye was upset; he would have been wracked just from having to leave someone to their own demise like that, but the fact that it was someone he knew and who had been so kind to him... He was coward, but not unfeeling. He felt as if he didn't even have the right to feel guilt for his own actions; after all, it wasn't like he was doing anything to right what he had wronged. It was his own choice to leave and abandon someone in need, and he should have been able to take responsibility for that. If he wanted to survive with the hand life had dealt him, he would need to learn to cope with whatever he had to do to accomplish that. It wasn't right of him to want both guaranteed survival and happiness, and it was just flat-out stupid to expect both. He had learned already that he needed to prioritize himself in a world that would do him no favors. Feeling regret for that was stupid and wasn't helping anyone, let alone himself.

His heart sank when he spotted a figure ahead and realized his efforts had been for naught. As he grew closer, he could see the thing blocking his path was a weezing, and one with a very eerie grin directed at him. His stride slowed to a halt; tail and ears drooped in fear. After what he had just done, sacrificing Mercury to save himself, he was done for anyway. With some desperate hope still lingering in him, he turned tail to flee; a second weezing stamped out his dwindling hope by cutting him off from behind. Before he knew it, he was surrounded on all sides by big balls of ick; and he knew it was over. He was completely and utterly disheartened. Perhaps he deserved this. He hung his head toward the ground and awaited whatever was to become of him, but to his surprise, one of the clearly hostile creatures opposing him... spoke. He was expecting to simply be attacked, maybe killed on the spot, but instead they were speaking to him. Suddenly, he had hope again, albeit not much.

The first thing he noted was that these things were with the venepede who had attacked Mercury. By the word "hit," he assumed it wasn't just about robbing her; killing the victims seemed to be a part of the plan here. This suspicion seemed to be confirmed when one of the weezing spoke of taking his fur. The thought sent shivers down his spine, primarily because he was pretty sure they wouldn't be satisfied with just shaving him. Despite this, he was glad; they were talking, which meant he could try to talk his way out of this. He wasn't quite ready to die and become someone's scarf. "My fur's dyed. Sorry to disappoint, but you're right; I'm literally worthless," he spoke with sudden clarity and confidence that betrayed his fear. It was still very clear that he was scared, but he was suppressing the panic that came with it. Fighting was far from a skill of his, but talking was a different story entirely. He wasn't a fan of socializing, but he knew how to talk when he needed to. His hope was rekindled and he now believed he stood a chance of surviving. All he had to do was convince them he wasn't worth killing.

Unfortunately, it seemed the glorified volleyballs were smarter than they appeared. "We'll see," came the short response that told him all he needed to know.

They weren't going to let him go just because he claimed his fur was dyed; they would take him with them to wherever they planned to do the deed, then they would take their time figuring out if his words were true. Then... he could only assume they would kill him either way. But he was undeterred; they had been given the thought that perhaps his fur didn't hold the worth they thought it did, and he could work with that. "My fur's worthless, but I have things. I don't have anything with me specifically so I don't get mugged, but that clearly didn't work, so I guess I just lose my stuff either way!" he huffed in faux agitation, wanting to make it appear as if he were genuinely upset at the idea of having his nonexistent belongings stolen. He had nothing, but they didn't know that. He could still save himself if he could just string them along.

"Kid, you don't have anything worth more than what you're wearing," the weezing responded yet again, continuing to be an immobile obstacle to his deceit. It still seemed to believe he wasn't dyed; granted, it was right, but he had to find a way to make it think otherwise.

All the eevee knew was that this group was out for money; they had targeted Mercury and himself to rob them, and now they wanted his fur since they believed they had nothing else to steal off him. They would probably have wanted his coat regardless, but if he could just convince them that maybe they wouldn't get anything for it, and maybe they could get something by letting him live if only a bit longer, then he could give himself some time to think of a way out of his situation. "I have money; more than you'd ever get for me, I guarantee. You could choose not to believe me, but then you won't get anything when you find out I'm telling the truth. Or you could let me take you where I stashed my stuff, then you know you'll get something out of it!" he spoke quickly, but not frantically. He was keeping himself calm so it looked like he wasn't just blabbing out everything he could think of to save himself.

Still, he felt he needed more. "Just please, let me live. That's all, and I'll give you everything I have," he pleaded. In truth, he didn't expect them to willingly spare him even if they actually agreed to; he just wanted to make it look like he believed they might. He needed them to think he was just someone at the end of his rope willing to give up everything he owned to save himself. He was, but the issue was that he didn't actually have anything to give. Fortunately, the group seemed to be considering his words; none of them had immediately responded by shooting him down, which was about the closest thing to a good sign he could ask for. If they still refused to budge, he was prepared to run. If that failed, he would fight even if there was no hope of him winning. Even if it made the inevitable demise harder on him, he would do everything to live until then.

...Then he heard Mercury's voice calling out to him. She was alive? He had heard one of the koffing say something about how the nidoking had gotten to her, which had been pushed to the back of his mind, but it certainly seemed like a fair assumption that that would have been the end of Mercury. If she was still alive, then...

Maybe there was some real hope that he would be saved. Kye knew he deserved what he was getting, but that didn't mean he was going to just take it; it didn't mean he couldn't hope.

The cavalry's a'comin, Kye baby.

From out of the rocks not too far away crawled another nidoqueen, supposedly looking for where it's counterpart had gotten off to. This one was noticeably older, a mother's mother perhaps. She emerged from a cave den high in the rocks, one clearly set out of the way. It was not easily detectable, but it everything below it was. The elder nidoqueen could see for miles, easily catching a visual of her daughter...

...chasing some kids around. Sigh. That girl had always had some problems. She hadn't been right in the head since the day she was hatched, but she was only a little slow. She had made good progress... but even now it seemed her daughter still hadn't learned to stay out of trouble. She understood why her daughter did this though. She knew the couldn't help it; it was the guilt and the frustration that ate at her with every passing day that encouraged her to get involved like this. It was a compulsion, maybe an atonement for her. No matter how many times the elder had tried to convince her that it was just her head, the daughter still persisted. The mother couldn't help but feel that she was failing her daughter.

That would be a thought for later mulling. For now, the elder lit up a pipe and began to lumber down to where her daughter was causing a scene once again. She actively avoided having the thought of "I'm too old for this shit" creep into her mind. It was cliche, not to mention she had it at least three times a week.

Down below, the arrival of Mercury and her companion was definitely a head-turner, throwing the gang surrounding Kye off their game for just a moment. They clearly hadn't been fully expecting this alternative, although they clearly weren't surprised enough to surrender anything either. Their arrangement did shift a bit out of caution though; the two weezing moving up to the front while the koffing held the back. There was a moment of unspoken silence (a miracle with Mercury present) where all sides stared at each other with unspoken meanings behind their eyes. Mercury looked at no one but Kye, the Nidoqueen glared accusingly at the mob, and the mob glared back, challenging anyone to do something. The slimeball weezing in particular kept looking at the nidoqueen, sizing her up with the same invasive glare that he had used on Velikeye. Suddenly, he grinned.

"Hey, isn't this fitting," he chortled with venom in his voice, all of his tensions suddenly melting away. "It's the mentally challenged dinosaur. Oh wait, is that too many big words for you?" he sneered. "I should have known it was you. Stupid attracts stupid."

The Nidoqueen suddenly cut him off. "He's just a kid. Let him go."

"Game's over, we can stop now!!! We should all go home, friends!" Mercury added in, hopping down and taking a few futile steps to try and get at Kye. She didn't make it very far before the weezing stopped her, though she was only paying the minimum amount of attention to him. "It's still on, I'm just pretending," she mouthed at Kye.

"There's no fuckin game and ain't nothing fuckin over, you brain-dead infant. Nobody here's your friend. No. Body. Not us, not that big dolt behind you, and not this guy. You hear me? You're roadkill. Fuckin understand already." The weezing seemed fed up, hostility spilling over into the gulch air in the form of verbal abuse. "Even if this guy had enough of a spine to be friends with you, he wouldn't want to. You're a hassle. I'm getting a headache just talking to you. But this guy, he's too busy bein smart and sacrificing your fuzzball ass. I'll bet you'll barter for him anyways, if I even want your money. Numbskull." the weezing spat at her.

Mercury.... didn't understand this. She didn't understand the words, granted, but even moreso she didn't understand the tone. The way he looked directly at her and said these things like a wild animal, she just couldn't handle it. She stared at him, but no words came out. She felt so, so uncomfortable. Nothing felt like a game here. Nothing felt even remotely close to happy. For another sobering second, Mercury flashed into the reality that she currently inhabited. The rocks were empty where they had held adventure. She looked at Kye's face. Nothing. She looked at the big pokemon. Nothing. A shiver ran down her spine. She came to the conclusion that she didn't recognize this place at all. What was that guy saying? Why was it making the world so distant? She had to figure something out, she had to find something. But there was nothing that the ball of gas had said that made any sense to Mercury. Niether did her reactions. Suddenly, she was on the outside. She had no reaction, no feelings, no words, watching somebody who looked like her in a completely foreign world. Through all of this, Mercury stared into his face, speechless and frozen in place.

He could hardly believe there were pokemon this stupid in the world. He really had to try to not just take his frustrations out on her right there, on someone who was probably too stupid to realize they were even getting used. It would have been a nice, easy break from this wrench that was now thrown into everything. He distracted himself by focusing harder on the nidoqueen, still sneering like a mad man. "This is ridiculous. I can't believe you're both too slow to realize you're in no position to be making demands. As far as I remember, there's four of us here producing way more than an eevee's lungful of air, and he ain't that far away." He clearly wasn't done, getting some kind of kick out of this. "What makes you think he's safer with you anyways? Heard you lost a tyke or two to some cliffs you were too slow to pay attention to. Someone dangerous like you doesn't deserve more kids; you already failed your own. Get it through your thick head!!!"

The nidoqueen was completely taken aback. She recoiled back from his harsh treatment, but it wasn't like she wasn't used to it. Still... something about the way he talked struck her. She was sick of feeling worthless. Even now, with her massive form and all her strength, she felt. so. worthless. Nothing she did was good enough. She balled up her massive paws into fists and they shook with her disgrace. She just wanted to be better. She had tried so hard for them... but even that she couldn't keep up with.

The others around the weezing were starting to look uncomfortable. They whispered things like, "C'mon, it's not worth it," and "We're wasting time here. We could have been there and back by now," and, "That little bag isn't worth bartering for, let's just go..." but the weezing glared at them all, threatening them too. He was going to make these 2 bit idiots understand.

"You finally understand, pea brain?" the weezing spat.

"HOW ABOUT YOU SHUT UP," the nidoqueen roared back. The loud noise was enough to catch Mercury's attention, even through her spiral. She looked up at the big creature, who's face boasted something Mercury had seen before. Something she had seen in her papa's face.

Fear. Mania.

Determination?

Mercury didn't recognize them as what they were, but she knew the feelings they made her feel. Those made sense to her. Okay, that made sense. There was something. She could vaguely start to feel her head pounding. Was her face... damp? Why were her eyes so warm and throbby?

"You don't know anything. You don't know anything!" The nidoqueen continued behind Mercury. "You take and you take and you live for yourself! You don't mean anything to anyone. You couldn't possibly; you'd rather take advantage of another life for your own gain. How could you understand what it's like? You couldn't know what it's like to try so hard, only to have it ripped away!!"

"......how bout you say that again to my face," the weezing challenged.

"How about none of you say anything," the nidoqueen mother said upon her arrival. NOW the koffing and weezing were backing up.

Mercury looked all around, but the only thing she could really make out that was familiar was the big creature and Kye's face, and even that was far away. What did that guy mean? Kye didn't want to be her friend? The phrase meant nothing in Mercury's mind. He... he didn't have to be her best friend anymore, maybe she could just help him. But he didn't act like he didn't want to be her friend? So what did that mean then? Friends don't have to be best friends, and nice people make good friends. Working together made things easier... So why didn't Kye want to be at least kind of her friend? Kye didn't want to be her friend..... because he was afraid? What was he afraid of? Why did he have to be so far away? She wished he was closer. She wished he would help her understand again, but she didn't want him to be afraid. If he was afraid, she would just be his friend. He didn't have to be her friend.

She decided she had to tell him this. With the koffings and the weezings distracted, she walked up to him easily.

"Kye...." her voice came out painful and scratchy. When had it gotten so painful to talk? Things still felt hazy; Mercury herself was feeling woozy. It wasn't important now, though. She had to tell Kye. "Kye, I'm sorry I didn't see you were scared. I'm sorry, I'm really sorry," she rasped. "It's all so confusing, Kye... it's hard for me to understand. But I..... I don't want to be a bad friend to you. Friends are supposed to understand each other and be able to help. Since I don't understand.... and since you're scared, you don't have to be my friend anymore, if that's helpful. I can just be your friend." She hung her head, "Just... if you can, please don't stop being around? I'll miss you if you go."

Kye didn't get an answer, but he wasn't necessarily disappointed by this development; for better or worse, Mercury happened to show up before the gang could do anything.  The eevee felt hopeful for a moment, relieved at the sight of his friend who had apparently tamed the nidoqueen.  He didn't know how or why and he wasn't interested in questioning it; he was just happy to see there was a chance of being rescued.  At first it seemed both of his wishes had been granted, and over time that assumption wasn't really changing.  However, he began to feel terrible all the same.  The group threatening to probably kill him were being about as cruel as one could expect, but the more they spoke with the nidoqueen... and with Mercury... the more Kye started to realize about himself.  He had abandoned Mercury and fled for his own life, they said; because he didn't care about her and wasn't her friend, they said.  At first, he had been staring hopefully at Mercury, trying to keep his attention on her and not the villains surrounding him, but as the conversation progressed around him...

The silvery eevee's gaze fell to the ground as he hung his head in shame.  Heartless villains who would skin someone and sell their fur for no reason... were complimenting him.  The weezing said all these cruel things about him, yet agreed with his choices, even going so far as to compliment him.  He had the approval of a presumed serial killer.  His body shuddered and recoiled into itself at the thought, making him look much smaller than he was.  His ears drooped and tail lay flat on the ground, though this betrayed his true feelings.  He wasn't so upset over the looming threat on his life; that still terrified him, but it hadn't exactly gotten scarier since a minute prior.  He was more mad than anything else, and at himself in specific.  Was he truly so corrupt that such black-hearts would approve of him?  Of course, he had gotten his fair share of insults out of this encounter as well, but those were expected; those made sense.  Besides, he wasn't too bothered at the prospect of someone else insulting him.

What really hurt was that every single word said about him was true.  He was a coward; that much was obvious and really didn't hurt his feelings all that much.  But it was also true that he had willingly abandoned Mercury, even before she had told him to.  He didn't know her well, but she had done nothing to deserve that.  Worse yet, he knew that in the same exact situation, he would do it again; something the group of criminals seemed to be aware of as well.  In hindsight he didn't consider Mercury to be much of a friend and was just using her for entertainment... to make him happy.  He had been insensitive to her feelings and well-being in regards to everything, and worse yet, he seemed to be leading her on to think that he truly cared about her.  She was nice to him and, in hindsight, that was the only reason he had stuck around her thus far; he had gone out of his way to be nice to her, but still, that was all he had done.  And now, she had gone and dragged him into trouble.  He was already swimming in a mixture of anger toward himself and toward the fennekin, tuning out pretty much the entire conversation at that point, but then she just had to go and start talking again...

She was sorry...  Velikye's eyes darted up to meet her in a glare, but they widened at what he saw.  Simply put, she was crying.  For a moment, his look of hate faltered in shock, the feelings being directed inward once more in his ever-present state of guilt.  However, as the fennekin continued to speak, his emotional disarray... changed.  His glare returned and intensified, this time properly portraying what he felt.  He had many reasons to be mad; Mercury had gotten him into this situation and was too stupid to understand that; she couldn't even understand the danger they were in because of her; she thought he was afraid of her of all things; and... the weezing who seemed to be in charge was interested in him.  To some extent, this weezing had complemented him, so it wasn't a far cry to think that perhaps if he did enough to appeal to what the big ugly ball of toxins liked about him... maybe he would be spared.  He was more than willing to do what he was about to do for his own life, but this was far from his only reason.

"You..." he spoke in a barely-audible and strained tone.  He was still absolutely terrified, and with the added anger on top of it, he was visibly shaking.  Despite his feelings, he still lacked the nerve for confrontation, but that was beginning to change.  "You think I'm afraid... of you?" he continued, this time more audibly as the slightest bit of conviction made itself present in him.  Then, his voice snapped into a shout, "I'm afraid of THEM, you idiot!!"  He barely took the time to breathe before continuing, "They want to kill me; to SKIN me!!"  The integrity of his voice was devolving into a strained, scratchy scream, showing how he was abusing his vocal cords.  A strange feeling welled up inside him; fear, but not the same as before.  It was a certain brand of stress that he hadn't felt since...  "I DON'T WANT TO DIE, BUT YOU MADE THIS HAPPEN!!"  Familiar thoughts of gore flashed through his mind, fueling his tantrum.  At this point there was very little thought behind his speech, and it was continuing to diminish.

"You just had to be so nice and so hard to say no to and just drag me to some deathtrap!" his voice shook and wavered, tears welling up in his eyes.  He didn't trust a handicapped nidoqueen and her friend or mom or whatever to save him; even if they could fight the gang, they wouldn't be able to get to him in time to guarantee his safety.  They were just provoking the things that wanted him dead, doing nothing to help him in the process.  He was saving himself.  It was so hard to stare at Mercury's sad face and yell at her, but a part of him truly wanted to; she deserved to know the consequences her own stupidity could have on others, if she was even capable of comprehending it.  "I'm not afraid of you.  I just hate you," his voice suddenly sounded tired, lacking the confidence and energy it had held just moments prior.  His thoughts kept going back to the sight of his parents, fear and anxiety overwhelming the anger that served as his primary motivation.  Suddenly, everything seemed to be spinning, the world growing blurry around him.  He stumbled; he seemed to be standing, which he assumed he must have done absently at some point during his... he had no idea what to call it.

Maybe if he could be the villain in the eyes of the villains, they would accept him rather than kill him.  He finally gave in and allowed his mind to cling to the thought it so desperately pulled him toward.  His look of anger had turned to that of a sad, scared child, which was exactly what he was.  Dreadful images painted his consciousness, dragging him away from reality.  He couldn't decide whether it was a relief or perhaps a punishment for his attack on Mercury.  The realization of how he had just wronged her suddenly hit him, serving only to further cripple his mental state.  He was drawn away from his consciousness and allowed to see Mercury once more, albeit through blurry eyes filled with tears.  The sight of the fennekin's form foregrounded a different memory in his mind: he had risked his own safety to help her during her earlier... episode... and after all that, what was it he had said?  Never change?  Here he stood, raving at her about how horrible she was just for being herself, and yet just minutes prior he was telling her never to change.

He wanted her to be who she was only when it suited him.  He wanted to yell at her about his problems because he knew there would be no consequence.  His words may have held some honesty, but he was really just blaming some poor kid who'd done nothing but treat him kindly for his own life.  He tried to deny how miserable he was on a daily basis, and now he had something to let all that misery out on.  He knew he was pathetic, but just how true that was had been out of the scope of his understanding... until now.  This may very well have been the last thing he would do, and he had chosen to take his problems out on someone else in his final moments.  That was how he wanted to be remembered?

Velikye tried to turn away from Mercury.  The very act of looking at her was paining him.  He spun his body to the left, his sight carrying along with the rest of him... and then black.  The eevee's turning motion abruptly shifted and his body fell limply to the ground.
